Woman adopts 12-year-old boy she found on street
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a Nigerian woman had adopted a 12-year-old boy she found on the street.
The woman Laylah, according to her post on Facebook, had found the lad on a street in Abuja and was moved by compassion.
The media personality upon meeting the lad whose occupation was to move with cattle asked him if he would like to be enrolled in school, to which he obliged.
Laylah reiterated that she met with his family and they agreed to her adoption request after putting up some resistance. The excited lady shared a photo with the boy alongside two of her sons.
Her post read in part:
"He is just 12, his job daily was to walk alongside many cattle from one end to other. I asked to meet him, he came in and stole my heart away.
"I asked him if [he] wanted to go to school and he immediately said 'yes'. I asked for his house address and father's telephone number, which he rightly give me."
